What does it do?
Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3, which research has proven can reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, wrinkles, and dry skin. The light-as-water texture of RESIST 10% Niacinamide Booster is designed to dramatically enhance your skincare while also providing soothing agents to promote visibly calm skin. Antioxidants and skin-replenishing ingredients make this product a multi-tasking must-have solution for all skin types, whether used alone or mixed into your favorite serum or moisturizer.
Who is it for?
RESIST 10% Niacinamide Booster is ideal for anyone looking to minimize the appearance of enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, or wrinkles, and to improve the surface texture of skin. Ideal for all skin types.
DIRECTIONS: Apply once or twice daily after cleansing, toning and exfoliating. Follow with your serum and other targeted products. At night, finish with your moisturizer; during the day, finish with a moisturizer with SPF 30 or greater. Can be applied under the eye area, avoiding the eye itself.
Dispense 2-3 drops into the palm of your hand and then apply to your face. Add a couple more drops if you will also be applying to your neck and chest.
You can apply this directly to the face or mix it into your serum or moisturizer.
What is the difference between the RESIST 10% Niacinamide Booster and the other products you sell that also contain niacinamide?
The difference is the concentration. While niacinamide is incredibly helpful even at much lower concentrations, skin research shows that a 10% concentration has a more targeted effect on stubborn large pores, hydration, and signs of aging. When used as part of your advanced skincare routine, the results can be amazing.
At what point in my skincare routine would I use RESIST 10% Niacinamide Booster?
Apply after cleansing, toning, and exfoliating with an AHA or BHA exfoliant. Dispense 2–3 drops and apply to your face and neck, and use the extra on the back of your hands and chest.
How does RESIST 10% Niacinamide Booster work to reduce enlarged pores?
Niacinamide’s effect on pores would require a very technical scientific discussion that would require a skin physiology lesson, however, suffice to say has fascinating research showing it can have a positive influence on normalizing pore performance.
I’m using your SKIN PERFECTING 2% BHA Liquid to reduce the look of my pores. Will RESIST 10% Niacinamide Booster replace this? Do they do the same thing?
They work very differently and one does not replace the other; rather, they work brilliantly together. BHA improves skin primarily as an exfoliant, while niacinamide works as a skin-restoring ingredient that affects the behavior of skin.
Does the RESIST 10% Niacinamide Booster also have anti-aging benefits, or is it just for reducing enlarged pores?
Yes, it does have other effects. Along with its visible effect on pore size, research shows it also provides anti-aging benefits.
Is it OK to apply RESIST 10% Niacinamide Booster around my eyes or to mix it with my eye cream?
Yes, it’s fine to apply around the eyes, either on its own or mixed with your favorite eye cream, serum, or moisturizer that you use around your eyes.
Can I mix RESIST 10% Niacinamide Booster with one of your other booster products?
Absolutely! You can mix it with any of our other boosters, whether they contain vitamin C, retinol, plant oils, or other ingredients. This booster’s highly compatible formula can help further enhance the benefits of any of our other boosters!
Can I use the RESIST 10% Niacinamide Booster in both my morning and night routines? Will I get better results using it twice a day?
Yes, you can use it twice a day, and depending on how advanced your skin concerns, twice a day will be better than once a day.
Can I use RESIST 10% Niacinamide Booster if I am using other Paula’s Choice Skincare products that contain niacinamide?
Yes, that’s fine. And, if you have normal to oily or combination skin with stubborn pores it can enhance your results.
